Betty Lou Phillips, age 79, passed away at Alliance Community Hospital September 17th, 2020.
She was born June 19, 1941 to Allen and Garnett Phillips.
Betty graduated from Alliance High School in 1959. She relished being a homemaker, wife and mother, she then obtained a nursing degree from Hannah Mullins in 1978. Her nursing career started with home health care, then Nist Healthcare Center and ultimately at Alliance Community Hospital where she worked 22 years in the ICU department.
Nursing was her calling in life, her compassion and empathy for her patients was second to none, ensuring a level of dignity in a person’s most trying moments.
Betty enjoyed her retirement years spending time with her beloved dogs, cooking delicious meals, her coffee pot was always full and her kitchen was a favorite for many friends and family.
She was the blonde hair, blued eyed lady in her red corvette on warm summer days. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, especially her special Dylan.
Those left to cherish her memory are her son, Ben (Deanna) Walter; grandsons, Dylan and Barron Walter; her sister, Linda (Robert) Anderson; and her niece, Roxanne (Darryl) Chernikovich.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Patricia Mohr.
